Ok so I was looking for glass lids for my 40 Breeder, I'm well aware of the Versa Tops sold by Aqueon as I have it on my 75g. But I dont see it for sale on Amazon, so what would my other options be? Or could I go with another brand? Please help, thanks!

What are the internal dimensions of the black trim were the glass will sit?

Aqueon does make a versa for the 40b. I have one.
I know they make it, but the first post I wrote says I didnt find it for sale on Amazon. I dont really want to buy from some off site where shipping will be ridiculous... LeoDiaz 36x18 is the dimensions and its about maybe .5 inch thick so...

I got mine at Petco. Not sure if you have one around you.

Yep got several around me. The closest one is real small though, just slightly bigger than their Unleashed stores.

The marienland and aqueon tops for those size need a center brace. image.jpg

Try Drs Foster and Smith or Big Als.
Also, the regular 36" works so you don't need a center brace as you need room in the back for your HOB's.

Ok thanks, will do! I love the free shipping of Prime so I'm rather picky about where I buy online

Thanks! This is perfect.
And, they are actually the makers of all the Aqueon tanks. I think they might be owned by Aqueon but their name is on the tanks they sell. So it will actually be the same glass top

Yep All Glass Aquariums was bought out a few years ago by Aqueon so they're one and the same.

Petco's Tetra brand works on the Aqueon 40g breeder tank. I just bought the Aqueon tank and glass top, both from Petco.

Well I kinda rushed and made the order for the glass lid from jswin's link without considering other options and it arrived yesterday so I'll have to make do with what I have. Last resort will have to be to return this and go with the Tetra glass top.
